Last year after reviewing Headstrong 52 Women Who Changed Science – and the World, I mentioned that I would like to see a coffee table book style with more visuals of the women and their research. With Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World, writer and illustrator Rachel Ignotofsky has captured the perfect book to introduce young children to the women who have contributed to the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields.
The book is a great reference. Each women are featured on two page layouts. On the left side of the page is an illustration of the woman and the following page contains her biography. Dotted around the illustration and biography are more illustrations and little factoids. It’s a charming book and reminds me of an older child’s version of the BabyLit series of books.
I enjoyed reading through the book and I’m looking forward to using it to read to my kids and using it as a teaching and conversation tool.
